Two weeks ago I participated at the one-day Lehrman American Studies Center Regional Seminar at Yale University about “The Founding and Re-Founding” of America. Bryan Garsten and Steven Smith led the discussion, with particular attention to Lincoln and his relationship to the U.S. Founders. In the afternoon session, both Glenn Moots and I led the discussion about how to implement these ideas in the classroom. The group setting was small and intimate – no more than a dozen people – and it was a great way not only to meet new people but to explore a topic in some depth.
I’m looking forward to the seminars this weekend at Amherst (Friday) and Harvard (Saturday). It should be an exciting time and a great opportunity to explore the questions of citizenship and statesmanship!
